Somewhere outside of Washington D.C., there is a secret kingdom. It’s a land that the mainstream media knows about but never covers. The land is called FlipFlopia. It is ruled by Chuck Schumer whose full title is “Chuck the Schumer, King of FlipFlopia, Ruler Of All He Cannot See Because He Wears His Glasses Like An Old Schoolmarm and High Priest of Hypocrisy.
In his exalted position the Schumer enforces the kingdom’s prime directive “If something is supported prior to Donald Trump becoming president, it must be rejected now.”
For example Trump’s promise of building a wall on the southern border of the United States. Sen. Schumer is an opponent of the wall, in March he threatened to shut down the government if the spending bill contained funding for the wall. At the end of Septemeber, he continued his objection saying, “We are going to continue to have the Statue of Liberty be our symbol, not that damned wall,”
But in 2006, during the second term of Republican President George H.W. Bush, the King of FlipFlopia voted in favor of the Secure Fence Act which authorized a double-layered fence with barbed-wire on top, and room for a security vehicle to patrol between the layers all along our southern border (only 36 miles of the fence was built before Obama became president and killed the fence).
Approving Presidential Cabinet Picks
When Barack Obama was trying to get his second term cabinet picks approved King Chuck criticized the GOP:
Just about everyone in America, Democrat, Republican, liberal, conservative, believe that once you elect a president he deserves his choices to run the executive branch. But a new tactic has it been introduced try to paralyze the executive branch the way they paralyze the legislative branches because they really don’t want the government to function.
But a new tactic has been introduced to try to paralyze the executive branch the way they’ve paralyzed the legislative branches because they really don’t want the government to function
But when President Trump submitted his cabinet picks, led by FlipFlopia’s Chuck Schumer the Democrats made slanderous accusations about the President and the people he’s sent to the Senate for confirmation, and Schumer “slow-walked” the nominations delaying votes he knew he couldn’t win.
Firing James Comey
In November 2016, his Highness Chuck of FlipFlopia gave Bloomberg his opinion of FBI Director James Comey, “I do not have confidence in him any longer.” He described Comey’s decision to speak publicly of an FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s negligent handling of classified information as “appalling. Yet six months later when President Trump fired Comey, FlipFlopia’s best said, “Earlier this afternoon President Trump called me and informed me he was firing Director Comey,” Schumer told reporters on Tuesday. “I told the president, ‘Mr. President, with all due respect, you are making a big mistake ”
The Iran Deal
When the vote for Obama’s awful Iran deal was approaching, the master of misdirection wrote a passionate essay explaining why he opposed the deal. However when President Trump decertified the deal and laid out an agenda for Congress to propose and vote on triggers to reimpose sanctions Schumer tweeted:

Actually, General Mattis was part of the team that put together President Trump’s Iran deal plan.
In 2013 Schumer joined then-majority leader Harry Reid in announcing they were ending the filibuster for most presidential appointments. Schumer said there should always be an up or down vote no matter who is in charge. “We’d much prefer the risk of up-or-down votes in majority rule than the risk of continued total obstruction that’s the bottom line no matter who’s in power”
In 2017 the FlipFlopia filibusterer said something totally different. He called for his Senate Democratic Party conference to filibuster Judge Gorsuch.
